To enable designers to take advantage of the unique capabilities of additive and digital manufacturing, this project will develop a new type of computeraided design (CAD) system. Underlying this new CAD system, the key idea is to simultaneously enable the design of the product, its materials, and their manufacturing processes. Problem formulations, geometry+material representations, design synthesis methods, process planning methods, uncertainty modelling, and material characterisation tasks will be performed. Resulting computational and information models will be integrated into a commercial CAD system to demonstrate designengineering- manufacturing workflows, novel design capabilities, and new multifunctional device concepts.
